    My son may have dropped it and has failed to mention it, you know what 8 year olds are like.

    If that is the problem can we fix it?

    Thank you very much for your help, we will try as you have suggested.

Nicham,

If I understand it correctly, the screens are still dark.
Small question....was it dropped on the floor?

    Your problem is most likely the processor. It is located under the Game slot. The processor is soldered on the systemboard and one of the tiny connections is for 99% sure broken. You cannot repair that yourself.
    The only solution is exchange the systemboard (buy a defective one on eBay for example) or send it to Nintendo for repair or exchange.
    It's the only way I'm affraid
    You can test if it is the processor by opening the bottom part of the case and put a battery on the systemboard and push it against the battery connector (the batteryslot is removed by removing the bottom casing). Now press firmly with your finger on top, and in the middle, of the Game Slot and turn the DS Lite on. If lucky the screens turn on as would it be working normally. When removing your finger, the DS Lite freezes or the screens are going black again.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

Pogo wont load games


This should get you started on trouble shooting the issue.

This is a link to POGO support, read all the information and follow the instructions. Most the time this will fix issues with POGO.

I have had cases that Internet Exporer would not work no matter what we tried. In those cases I have downloaded and used Firefox (link for downloading below).

Hope this helps
